    I only took Hydrazaline for only one day 50 mg 4 times a day. I was on Clonadine a week prior to the office visit and my Doctor took me off and gave me the Hydrazaline.

    I started hydralazine 50mg twice a day on 3/29/12. I already take lisinopril 40mg once a day and HCTZ 12.5 once a day. I was taking Amlodipine Bysalate 5mg but the doctor took me off that when I started the hydralazine. Within 3 days my heart was pounding so fast I couldn't lie down and had to sit up all night.

    I'm currently taking several blood pressure medications among them Apresoline. I started this medication about 2 weeks ago. 50 mg. 3xdaily. I could not tolerate it due to pounding heart and discomfort. My doctor reduced the dosage to 1/2-50mg. 3x a day. I continue to have heart pounding. It is effective in reducing my b.p. quickly. I am going to have heart sugery for a valve replacement. ... Show Full Comment

    I was given Hydralazine for high blood pressure and within a year, I experienced joint and muscle pain, out of control high blood pressure and systemic lupus erthymatosis. I asked my doctor if the medication was causing all of my symptoms and he said "no, it was a good medicine". I suffered for 7 years with lupus until I finally found another doctor who did the ANA blood test and found o ... Show Full Comment
